point for the next round of sanctions against russia for this crisis ongoing in ukraine. until now, president obama has set the bar at a russian invasion for ukraine here. but after meeting today with german chancellor angela merkel, he moved it up a tad because the president here is hanging on to a possibility of a diplomatic resolution. and angela merkel agreed with that. although he punctuated that with a very big "but" today. president obama speaking at a news conference with the german chancellor a little more than an hour ago. >> but as angela merkel said, if, in fact, we see the disruptions and destabilization continuing so severely that it impedes elections on may 25th, we will not have a choice but to move forward with additional more severe sanctions. and the consultations have been taking place over the course of the last several weeks about what exactly those would look like and would apply to a range of sectors. the goal is not to punish russia, the goal is to give them an incentive to choose the better course, and that is to resolve these issues diplomatically. and i

a single case brought against russia in the world trade organization. this is the case despite the fact that the administration told congress during consideration of pntr that one of the major benefits of having russia in the w.t.o. would be our ability to bring them to dispute settlement. i'm also profoundly disappointed that the president refuses to bring a w.t.o. case against india for its continuing efforts to underminus intellectual property rights. india knows better. we know better and we ought to be forceful about this. i think it would help them as well. with regard to india, it exemplifies a pattern of gross neglect within this administration when it comes to enforcing american intellectual property rights. countries are taking note of the failure to act in this area. this is feeding the perception that they can refuse to protect and even actively violate u.s. intellectual property rights with impugnity. finally, i'm deeply concerned about the office of the u.s. trade representative as an institution. ambassador, i sincerely appreciate the hard work and dedication of you and y
